Democratic Ideal of Park for All Gives Way to VIP Areas.

This weekend yet another large event is to take place in Madison Square Park. The Big Apple Barbecue Block Party. This is a big draw to the park bringing quite a large crowd. The well heeled can purchase special VIP tickets for 500.00. These tickets entitle one to a special VIP TENT where they do not have to wait online like the rest of the masses, comes complete with a special gift basket.

In a time where the divide between rich and poor is growing this flies in the face of the democratic ideal of  park as place for average New Yorker who does not own a house in the Hamptons.
